The Savoy Hotel
Photograph - By Karol Livote
The Savoy Hotel located in Bridgeport Connecticut. It is abandoned and crumbling. It seems that every room and hallway is in complete shambles with peeling paint, shattered windows, missing doors and tons of pigeon droppings. It is said to house rats, vagrants and of course, ghosts. They truly do not build them like this any more. There are 10-foot ceilings, cement floors and plaster walls. The bathrooms, some of which were shared between guest rooms, featured pedestal sinks and claw-foot tubs. At one time, the rooms only were $1.50 each! There was 109 rooms on five floors.
So, who is said to be haunting the Savoy? Well, there is the old excuse that it is built on ancient burial ground. Others speculate it could be gangster Dutch Schultz, who bootlegged alcohol in Bridgeport during Prohibition, and possibly did other work out of the Savoy hotel: Two people were murdered in the second-floor lobby during that time. Crossed gangsters seeking revenge?
Unfortunately over the decades, the abandoned building has also seen it's fair share of other crimes and unfortunate events, any of which could leave behind negative energies & spirits. The building is closed to the public and at this time the city has no plans for it.
